If you’re in for a relaxing high end skin treat you might want to indulge in a treatment at the Guerlain Spa at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam. The atmosphere is very inviting, and the surroundings are peaceful. The spa offers a wide range of opportunities to choose from, which guarantees a luxurious experience that can be topped by a visit to the Spa pool.
One of the most popular treats is the Orchidée Impériale Prestige Treatment. Why? For over ten years, Guerlain research has been working to unveil the secret of the orchid. It has the power to aid the skin to turn back cellular time by helping to target the mechanisms that lead to the end of cell activity. With that in mind I could not wait to get my Prestige Treatment.
It all starts with a warm welcome by one the therapists in a decorated yet very serene room. Especially during below zero temperatures its wonderful to have you feet taken care of to warm up. From there on, the only way is up. The idea behind the Orchidee Imperial treatment is to boost the skin with the high performance global anti-aging range. During the cleansing with the cleansing crème I totally understand why this treatment is so popular.
My skin is thoroughly massaged with a kabuki brush, which is surprising as I usually use it to apply face powder with. A ultra-modern way of cleansing which I like. After that a toner is used followed by a facial scrub. It all smells divine so far and I am looking forward to the next step. The hydration mask which contains a boost of hyaluronic acid is warmed up in the microwave before its applied to the skin. This method works wonders for your senses when you’ re ready to snooze off any minute…
Due to the regenerating serum that is applied after the mask and slightly prickles my skin I am wide awake. The serum is massaged into the skin for a few minutes before THE CREAM is applied. An amazing melt-away rich cream with a silky texture that helps the skin to recover firmness. Perfect for dehydrated, thursty and more mature skin. It leaves the skin feeling plumped and gives it a beautiful glow.
After an enjoyable cooling down period in the serenity room with Jasmine tea, I applied a subtle make-up while I could see the improvement of my skin as it looked and felt refreshed. I sprinkled one of the recommended perfumes: Le Petit Robe Noir.
By the way I have a new and favorite product: the Orchidee Imperial eye and lip cream works wonders on dry or chapped lips. It also makes lipstick stay in place. When used as a concealer base you will notice that fine lines are diminished and a concealer (even a richer texture) blends better. Love at first sight.
If you feel like treating yourself to a high end spa experience this is definitely a spa I would recommend. Paulina Wickman did a great job!
